Helping women and children in need move toward self-sufficiency and stability through advocacy, outreach and charitable giving.
At the beginning of each year, WPC members nominate and vote on a local or international charity that aligns with our mission to be selected as our annual partner. Once selected the organization is supported by WPC through fundraising efforts, volunteer activities, advocacy, and proceeds from our annual event. Annual event earnings are split 50/50 between our current beneficiary and future WPIG charity partners.
Women’s Philanthropic Collective of Seattle is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization and is registered with the Washington Secretary of State as a Charitable Solicitations Fund.
Our members represent a talented group of women with varying educational and professional backgrounds. We utilize these talents and skills to fuel our passion for helping others.
In addition to volunteering and fundraising for our annual partner charity, WPC members are required to achieve a set amount of volunteer hours each year. Direct service opportunities are available each month and are coordinated by the philanthropy committee. Volunteer activities are arranged with a number charities and organizations in the region with aligned missions. Learn more about our past partner charities here.
One unique component of WPIG is our investment strategy. Throughout the year, we educate ourselves about finance and investing by inviting guest speakers, to meetings and attending other financially focused events. In turn, we maintain a stock portfolio with stocks hand-picked by the group. Earnings are used to support WPC’s operations and our charity partners. Each year, we organize a fundraising event to benefit our annual partner charity. Additionally, members nominate and vote on two organizations to be the recipients of a quarterly giving donation.
